​​Odet is a new journal dedicated to the written and visual arts of the Tampa Bay Area, with a focus on fiction, essays, memoir and poetry. Odet is named for early settler and storyteller Odet Philippe, and was created by Safety Harbor Writers & Poets.


Our initial publication is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017 in celebration of the centennial of the incorporation of Safety Harbor, Florida, a regional center of the arts nestled in the heart of bustling Pinellas County. We primarily seek fiction, poetry, essays/memoirs, and black and white artwork or photographs that somehow reflect Safety Harbor or unique Florida customs, cultures, or people. Be creative. We are looking for submissions that hook us, inspire or surprise us in ways no one has before.
